HUD is requesting public comment to develop a Notice of Funding Availability for a new housing demonstration project. According to HUD, this project aims to “provide transitional and other temporary rental housing assistance and supportive services to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking.”
Over $ 1.4 million in funding has been determined by HUD's Office of HIV/AIDS (OHH) and the Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women (OWV) to help with this initiative. OHH is also in the process of exploring funding opportunities from HOPWA, the federal housing program dedicated to providing housing assistance and services for individuals with HIV/AIDS.
